Take Home Test Standard 5

  1. 1. 5.4.4 Explain that in any particular environment, some kinds of plants and animals survive well, some do not survive as well, and some cannot survive at all.
  2. 2. Monday Activity: Discuss with the class various environments, plants, and animals. Have the students do a KWL chart with those three subject matters and then talk about them in small groups and then with the entire class.(Intrapersonal)(communication) Read the start of the following books: “Curious George goes to the Beech,” “The Great Kapok Tree,” “Billy’s Mountain,” and “Pipaluk and the Whales.” (Language Arts) These books are all about various types of climates. Have the students write about where they think these climates are located on a map and have them choose their favorite book. Have the students predict what they think will happen in the story. (predict) (classifying climates and map) (Social Studies) Objective: The students are learning more about environments, animals, and climates. They are going to infer what they think will happen later on in the book. Tuesday Activity: Have the students separated into groups. The groups will all have their own book and have the students go into the group with the book they think they will enjoy the most. Have the student discuss what they predicted (yesterday) about the rest of the book and then have them read it together. Groups should talk about if their predictions of the book were true and what the book can teach about the climate and the types of animals, environments, and plants that are there.(observe) (interpersonal) Have the students read the book and on the second time, act the story out.(bodily kinesthetic) Objective: Students are discussing with others about their thoughts. They are trying to making predictions and inferences from their observations. Wednesday Activity: Tell the students they will be creating the climate, environment, and the plants and animals that one may find there. We will go to the computer lab and research some information to answer some questions the students may still have about their climates. (Technology) The students should think about the information they are finding and begin to visualize how they can make this climate come to life. Explain that they can use what ever materials they would like to when creating this project. They will have to logically explain to the class why they created this project the way they did and why they displayed the things the way they did.(Logical) Students need to have a written description wrote for tomorrow’s class and have them bring in materials they need to create their project. Objective: Students will research information about topic. They will communicate with their group and find a way to make a display of their climate and what it entails.
  3. 3. Thursday Activity: Collect the groups’ written descriptions and make suggestions on it for them (Assessment). Students should begin to make their project look like the natural sights that could be found on earth. (Naturalistic) They need to measure the amount of change their climate could entail from the various times of the year.(Measure) The students also need to write about why certain plants and animals can live in these climates and why others would die. (Indicator 5.4.7) The group needs to come up with a rap or song to sing to present their information they discovered about their climate.(Musical) This will be presented tomorrow in front of the class. The need to make sure they use the proper vocabulary in their creation. (Linguistic) Objective: Students are going to find a visual and musical way to present the information they found about their climate. Friday Activity: Students will present their projects and musical activities to the class.(Spatial) I will grade upon who much effect and knowledge they learned throughout this project. (Assessment) Students will write a paragraph about what they learned from each of the presentations. They will also need to infer what would happen if that climate/environment was changed drastically. (Infer) Objective: Students will present to the class and write about what they learned from each other. TSWBAT: The students will be able to communicate in a group and in front of the entire class. The students will show that they can conduct research and make inferences from the information they discovered. The students will know/understand more about various climates.
